Wonky; you wouldn't chuffing believe it but...

I've hit the age when friends are getting pregnant DELIBERATELY.

Seriously I swear someone must have sent a memo round they're all at it! Even the sensible ones.

Fortunately I don't check my inbox very often so have missed out on the latest batch of sproglet's.

Have I grown too much

I'd have told him to stop counting and start watering! It's all normal; remember if there's space there's not too much.

Well that's the lawn cut, and thanks to Clarington tripping over the world one of the flower beds too.

Still at least the weeds are less noticeable now.

My lawn has suffered somewhat with the hound and his lordship using it all winter. I'm not sure whether to leave it and hope it bounces back or try and investigate a pet safe way to give it a boost. What do you think?

Don't seem to be able to shift a headache that's been bugging me all day. I hope I'm not allergic to the sunshine!!

Your new-look forum

Yay I can post pictures from my mobile!

I've just used the latest post" forum option. The first time it worked fine so after commenting on a thread I clicked it again to see what else I've missed... it's now refusing to show me anything newer than three days ago (including not showing the thread I'd just responded too).

Something needs tweaking if you'd be so kind Nora!

Interesting you say that Dove; I'm finding the website better on my phone!

Well my scouts were mostly well behaved on their visit to the museum last night. BUT as they left their scout leader gave us a box of chocolates as a thank you! That is the first time I've been given anything other than a cold from visitors. One leader commented that he was amazed how much detail I was able to produce about the building, the emergency services (past & present) without any notes or prompts... I had to confess that while I can remember all of this it's rather pushed out day to day stuff like phone numbers! 

Today a very clever teacher has gotten around the voting closure by booking her two classes in to the museum; I have to say I was very impressed since so often it's a lost day.

Some of the plants in flower in the garden (I missed off the clematis, strawberries, and random blue flowered thing that just will not die no matter how much we ignore it. )

You know what we all need? Some silly pictures to make us chortle.

Lets see if the forum will let me oblige...

Awful new format for forum

Lantana. I can see three adverts and one post (yours).One at least is gardening related (poor Mr TItchmarsh looking very tired with his no fuss guides).

Oh my hell bell Fidget? I hope at least they left a telephone number? 

We had someone reverse into my partners car while walking the dog and two men saw it and were it not for them he'd have driven off. He left a false number and a false number plate (which they corrected for us and we were able to trace him). I saw the car several days later while driving my truck and thought nothing to blocking him in (my truck is not the kind of thing you can easily dent) while I went out in the hope of causing just some of the annoyance he caused us. Alas it seems he took to hiding as it was still there despite a longer than normal walk. I did find out that he had hit several other cars and the other dog walkers had nothing but praise for my ability to park my car a mouses fart from his drivers door.

I currently have a semi nudey picture of Gary Big Ears thanks to the advertising (Walkers Crisps). Since I neither support football nor the consumption of crisps I can only wonder why Gardeners World thinks semi nudey old men might appeal to me? I mean he was old when I was still at school.

Eww and Eww Gardeners WOrld! Choose who advertises on your website more carefully now the adverts are garish and offensively bright at the best of times!
